La Paloma by Sebastian Yradier is certainly a beautiful, simple sounding piece yet in surprising twist it actually contains many technical challenges and idiomatic guitar techniques in order to play it correctly.

Here are the various techniques you will need to know in order to play this piece correctly:

  • Artificial harmonics
  • Natural harmonics
  • Palm mute
  • Arrastre
  • Ligados

From an actual interpretation side it is very important to not overplay the bass line and accompanying notes. The melody must stand clear and proud. In fact many players are guilty of playing this piece giving equal importance to all notes and this sadly detracts from the lilting melody.
